About this Cook
I grew up in Pilot Mountain, NC; the middle kid out of five. We got three channels on a black & white TV, but I spent most of my time outside. Summers wading in the creek or rambling the woods where it was cool . . .picking berries, drinking cold water from a natural spring that was just down the path that led from the road to woods. Making playhouses and forts; not with things that were bought for that purpose, but with junk we found at the dump, in the basement or just what nature provided . . . . moss, pine cones and tea sets made from acorns. We caught tadpoles and watched them evolve in to frogs, played catch, croquet, badminton, Simon says, Red Rover,1-2-3-redlight, and batted rocks with a stick in the gravel road in front of our house. We rode bikes, played horseshoes and roasted hot dogs over a fire in a pit in the side yard on sticks that we cut from nearby trees.

Simple Pork and Cabbage Skillet
I used 2 inch cuts from a whole pork tenderloin since that is what I had on hand and dusted each piece on both sides with Cajun seasoning before browning for about five minutes on each side. I also added a little sugar and Mrs. Dash Extra Spicy on top of the cabbage prior to heat reduction for the simmering. Cooking for about 45 minutes was perfect and we found the mixture of flavors to be quite good. I will definitely make again and serve with some nice crusty bread for, as we say in North Carolina, "soppin'" the gravy.
